Hi
While working on the code for a ironrubymvc i came across the following
code

controllerRubyClass.EnumerateMethods((_, symbolId, __) =>
                                                         {
                                                             if
(String.Equals(symbolId, actionName,

  StringComparison.OrdinalIgnoreCase))
                                                             {

controllerRubyMethodName = symbolId;
                                                                 return
true;
                                                             }
                                                             return
false;
                                                         });

The tidbit I find interesting is the _ and the __ in the lambda. Is that
an
equivalent for null or does it something else?

Cool! I didn't know you could do this.

It's just a placeholder when you don't care about that arg. Very
functional.

_ and __ are just normal local variables (parameters) scoped to the
lambda.
